Subcontractor Pre-Qualification

  • 1.  Subcontractor Pre-Qualification

    Posted 17 days ago
    Hi all,
    I am looking for any recommendations on an inexpensive software option for per-qualifying subcontractors prior to them working for us. We only have around 20 active subcontractors so we don't need a robust option. Something basic that I can have them log in to and fill out would be ideal.

    Open to any ideas or suggestions, thank you!

    Hi Christopher,

    We don't have a large number of subcontractors either. So we came up with our own fillable document with request for additional information to be attached. We found this to be the most cost effective method for our size. That being said, we have had some issues with renewing information timely.

    Thanks

    This may be more basic than what you are looking for, but Google Forms is free and pretty highly customization. Depending on how much information you need to capture, or the level of security needed (you mentioned logging in to a service, so I'm not sure how big this concern is for you), Google Forms might be a nice option for you!

    Hi Chris,

    We have alot of subs and use a product called TradeTapp owned by Building Connected.  .  They have all the necessary info you need, the alerts and ability to further customize.  I think the cost is tied to how many subs you have in it so maybe worth seeing what a small package costs vs building something yourself.
